It is the time of the year to start your Christmas gift lists. Stores are decorating for the holidays and music of merriment is playing everywhere. It is the season of giving and remembering.
The Colorado Aviation Business Association, Metro State University Aviation and Veterans of Foreign Wars seventh (7th) annual Christmas Food/Toy airlift to VFW Posts in Colorado is now one month away.
We are asking for your donation of cash, food and toys to be delivered to Department Headquarters, 1400 Carr St., Lakewood, CO. 80214 by December 1st. We will be staging these items at Centennial Airport for the Airlift on December 9th.
If your post or auxiliary would like to have planes deliver these items to an airport in your area to help Veterans and their families who might find themselves in need this holiday season, please contact the Chairman to make these arrangements or any question you might have about this project.
The donations also support some eighteen families from the Fort Carson Army Base to make their Holiday season a little more enjoyable with less stress.
